Mavericks Sign Jameer Nelson

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 10:33:00 +0000

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(DALLAS) -- The Dallas Mavericks signed Jameer Nelson Thursday.

ESPN's Marc Stein reports it's a two-year deal with a player option to return to free agency next summer.

The 32-year-old Nelson was selected with the 20th overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft by the Denver Nuggets, but his draft rights were traded to the Orlando Magic, where he spent his entire 10 year career.

The 6-foot, 190-pound Nelson was waived by Orlando on June 30. The Magic will still pay Nelson $2 million this season, money due to Nelson from the final year of his contract with Orlando.

For his career, Nelson has averaged 12.6 points, 5.4 assists, and 3.1 rebounds per game.
